"A rock-solid series debut." -BOOKLIST

Before there was Dexter, there was Billy Knight.

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Jeff Lindsay mastered suspense with his wildly addictive DEXTER series. Before that, however, there was former cop and current burnout Billy Knight. When a hostage situation turns deadly, Billy loses everything-his wife, his daughter, and his career. Devastated, he heads to Key West to put down his gun and pick up a rod and reel as a fishing boat captain. But former co-worker Roscoe McAuley isn't ready to let Billy rest.

When Roscoe tells Billy that someone murdered his son, Billy sends him away. When Roscoe himself turns up dead a few weeks later, however, Billy can't keep from getting sucked back into Los Angeles, and the streets that took so much from him.

Billy's investigations into the death of a former cop, and his son, will take him up to the highest echelons of the LAPD, finding corruption at every level. It puts him on a collision course with the law, with his past, with his former fellow officers, and with the dark aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement. Jeff Lindsay's considerable storytelling gifts are on full display, drawing the reader in with a mesmerizing style and a case with more dangerous blind curves than Mulholland Drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crime Filled Romp Through LA and Florida Keys Billy Knight is an ex-cop taking fishing charters out of the keys until he called back to LA. The police do not seem very interested in solving the murder of a cop and his son so Billy is going to. Even though this is a new printing this book was first written in 1994 and it does feel dated in some areas. Esp when Billy is searching LA for a pay phone. The action travels from LA and back to Keys. The mystery, the characters and the setting are well written. The author knows Florida and LA well. Despite the Gritty subject matter there are a lot of laugh out loud moments. I will never look at coffee shop food the same. Enjoy this Crime filled romp. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
